Caring for precious stones

Try to store your jewelry separately so it doesn't scratch other jewelry. (plastic bags are wonderful for protecting jewelry pieces) Jewelry should only be put on after washing and applying any makeup, hair spray, gels, lotions or perfume.

Try to protect any jewelry from harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures and sunlight. Always try to store your beaded necklaces or bracelets flat.

You should not wear beaded jewelry while doing household or outdoor chores. You should never wear any jewelry when swimming or showering. The chlorine can cause damage to various gemstones and gold. Store your jewelry in a clean, dry place.

Natural colored gemstones are often treated to improve their appearance. These treatments are permanent and require no special care.

Do not expose your gemstone jewelry to salt water or harsh chemicals, such as chlorine or detergents. These chemicals may slowly erode the finish and polish of gems.

Bangles (wired bracelets)

Use a polishing cloth to effectively clean your jewelry. If your jewelry requires further cleaning, use mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry.

Never wear jewelry cleaner on Trend pieces. Jewelry cleaners are too harsh and may contain abrasives. We recommend using a polishing cloth for Precious pieces.

To avoid black markings either on your skin or the bangles, be sure to clean your bangles regularly. These markings are due to trapped oil and dirt in the metal and can be easily cleaned
